Disclaimer: All County Letters (ACLs) issued from the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and All County Welfare Director Letters (ACWDLs) issued from the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) provide State policy and direction to counties for categorical aid programs. The County of Santa Clara disseminates the information regarding the Federal, State and County policies via Program Handbooks. A handbook has been developed locally for each categorical aid that's administered by Social Services Agency - Department of Employment and BenefitsServices (DEBS); containing specific guidelines and procedures based on the ACLs and ACWDLs for that particular program. These policies and procedures are updated periodically to reflect State and County policy changes in conjunction with internal memorandums.
